Blond hair opens the gateway to popularity for Nicole Saba
During the first screening of the Egyptian film "A Danish Experience" starring Lebanese actress/singer Nicole Saba and Egyptian prominent actor Adel Imam, many people began whispering on how Nicole has become so popular. Before starring in the film Nicole was known on a small scale as an ordinary model and singer in the Lebanese band the Four Cats.
According to the London based magazine, Sayidaty, the one thing many had wondered was how fate brought her side by side next to one of the Arab world's most popular actors. It was added that her looks and the blonde hair had developed over the years taking her to unimaginable popularity.
Nicole herself revealed that she was in shock when she had received a phone call from Adel asking her to be in his new film. She added that at first she thought it was a prank. The opportunity opened the gateway for Nicole into the Arab version of Hollywood and led many producers and directors to begin offering her roles in their films.
In the movie Nicole admits that she has stepped into the world of celebrities. Nicole revealed that she enjoyed her first acting experience with Adel, who told her that she has got the potential to succeed in the world of acting. Nicole admitted that Adel gave her a push forward to go on to establish a new career in acting in addition to her original career as a singer. Nicole added that she learned a lot from all the notes given by Imam, saying that the story of the movie was bold yet not dull. She stressed that she did her role as a foreign girl and she acted as one. Nicole uttered that she did not come up with anything new regarding her clothes worn in the movie, saying that in all Arab movies since the sixties actresses were wearing revealing dresses and bathing suits, so what she wore was nothing out of the ordinary.
With regards to her looks, Nicole noted that it is true that her outer appearance was a great factor in her receiving the role in the film and that the whole story revolved around a beautiful girl. But she added that she added all her creative powers to the role the thing that made all her fans see her as a potentially successful actress and not just a beautiful face and body.
With regards to her over revealing herself in the film, she simply said that she did not wear anything that she would not wear in her daily life, asserting that all Lebanese people admire art, fashion, and beauty.
